My / yours lifestory?


I'm new here. Joined this site because I have MD (surprise? :b). I’ve been reading some of the posts and would like to write something myself, but I don’t really know what to write. Soeh … I guess I’ll tell a bit about myself?

Maybe it would be interesting to see if any of you have had the same “lifestyle” as me or what you call it.

When I was a child and began in school I didn’t get many friends and was always an outsider. When we were playing games I always got…

still cant believe im not alone...

I really feel excited about not being the only one in this world dealing with MD. No one in my family knows about this. not my friends, nor my boyfriend. I always kinda thot it would go away with age. but instead the dreams are deeper. whats worse, Im a film student and my major is scriptwriting - all i want to do all day is dwell in these dreams n weave more and more plots. sometimes my reality sucks compared to the dreams, so much that i wud rather bunk class just to sit at home… Continue

Scared that I was alone

I have been doing this thing for years. I never thought it to be daydreaming, I would pretend my friends are in my house and other people too. I have a pretend cousin that would sit on the couch with guys and one of the guys I would really like. I would have conversations with them and know in my head what they would say. I would do this all day. When I watch TV or are on the PC it would stop. I do it when I'm bored. I think I'm lonely. I have friends but I'd rather pretend they are there… Continue

IQ and MD.

Hey, I was wondering if there was a link between MD and IQ. Since I'm always looking up things about psychology, I looked up characteristics that are often associated with having a high IQ. I've never taken an IQ test and the one I did only had 10 questions which I got a 9/10 on but still I don't think a small online test like that can really tell me my IQ. Anyways, I was looking at characteristics of "gifted" or people with high IQs. And I found that a lot of the characteristics applied to…

Ok, so i learned that writing helps me with my daydreaming. I started writing out my daydream instead of, you know, daydreaming it. But here is the thing, I can't write forever, so I go back to daydreaming. I haven't wrote in a week.

I daydream a lot. I will go up to my room at 8 to 'go to bed' but not actually sleep till 2- 2:30 cause of my daydreams. Last year it was 11. I am lucky that I am homeschooled right now, or else I would be sleeping in class. But the bad thing about… Continue

19.03.2013 - It's Been a While

          So, it's been a while since I've written one of these and I thought I might make one for the fun of it. I'm not even sure if anyone will read it, but I find them extremely gratifying, so here goes.

          I started the day with another addition to my neglected dream journal; it was a strange dream and it got me thinking: Why do you (or me, at least) never have dreams of normal things? Something like watching television when nothing's really on, except that show that's not…

Focussing rant

Okay, I was about to start working on an assignment that was due yesterday or earlier needs to be handed in tomorrow; I was at the kitchen table and there was no noise except the rain and the clock, and I was able to concentrate, and get into a good frame of mind. I wrote one line, and my sister got out of bed and came to talk to me about useless stuff (The album art for 30 Seconds to Mars' new album and single.) I managed to get her away…

Catch Phrase

Do you think the game called Catch Phrase would be good therapy for people with MD?  It seems to be that socializing is the exact opposite of day dreaming.  I think Catch Phrase would callenge any MDer.

Dreaming going too far

I have enjoyed my dreams, and now I find myself not having the time I would like to  do my dreaming. In the past, my dreams come, I will play them out in my head for awhile, sometimes a couple months, and then I move on. Maybe this one that I am on now will do the same thing, I don't know, it is new.The problem with this dream is, it not only involves real people, but I find myself wondering what if it were to one day become real. There is one person I have been dreaming about now for about…

Recording Maladaptive Daydreams?

I'm just curious if anyone with MD has ever video taped themselves daydreaming. Periodically I set up a camera on a tripod and record myself for about 30 minutes and watch it back. It's trivial, but I learn a lot about how MD may look to an outsider. Watching playback of my behavior helps me realize what I'm doing, how much time I waste doing it and what I could've been doing instead.

Memories and Happiness

I've only seen glimpses of what happiness is, during my life. Those few real memories I have, I cherish so much. Too much actually. I can't seem to let go of the past and move on from them. I'm afraid of them getting further and further away. My daydreams are substitutes for every other memory I have, or emotion I feel. Sometimes I look back on the daydreams I use to have, and I remember how they made me feel. I reminisce about those particular times in my life. I'm realizing now, I have more… Continue

I've joined the site today and thought I'd just write an entry with a bit about myself and why I joined. Ever since I can remember I have had an overactive imagination. I first noticed that I was different from everyone else, when at the age of about 11, my friends lost interest in 'make-up' games (where you basically pretend to be different people) but I didn't lose the interest. I would just play them by myself in the playground and would have carried on in secondary school if I wouldn't…

I am not going to say that I am fully cured, but I have found out a remedy that was a great help in reducing my DD spells!! My biggest problem was always catching myself and then finding productive things to think in its place. But after I took on this habit, it really opened my eyes in how much stronger my mindset is to be in control!! It is not therapy, no pill....something you probably would never even consider in a million years....


Now...there are…

Ready to give it up, but...

I've just lost interest in my characters and the worlds I've created. This has been going on for months even. I really am at the point of giving up the daydreaming. In fact, I feel like I can achieve so much more if I give it up, and I really want to just let go.

The only thing is it's become such a habit I'm not sure how to stop. Does that make sense? For me it once started as a coping mechanism has twisted my mind (I guess you can say) to a new type of thinking pattern. Basically my…

i dont know why but whenever i have a question,i usually dont find it in other blogs...so i'm gonna start it........all MDs have an overactive brain...i mean we are(or is it just me? ) always thinking,daydreaming,imagining scenes/stories,making plans....etc etc. We hardly have a moment of peace when our brain is not super busy...i want to know if it is a good thing or a bad thing.my mom told me that when she was a student,she could solve equations and remember huge answers in her brain...she… Continue

Wow its been decades..I finally have a name for this.

I have suffered from this since at least early teens.Possibly longer.I had an overactive imagination as a child and would act out movies after watching them.My mother thought it odd and would tell me to stop and that I was being silly so i would hide this activity.maybe why it became MD??? Could this be a reason?? So it has continued on into my 40's.Althought it has changed and became less of a time consuming thing.Maybe because as we age we have less to fantasize about?I do notice it can be…

What do you think of socializing as a form of therapy?

I think socializing is the opposite of daydreaming as it forces you to to be in the present moment instead of being in some kind of fantasyland. Do you think being forced to socialize for 12 hours a day 7 days a week 4 weeks in a month would establish a habit of not day dreaming? How about reading a novel out loud for that period of time instead?

1st Therapy visit was for the birds- tried to explain MD

Hello all! Well I attempted to explain to my therapist what MD is an that it is a legit disorder that many people suffer with and that it is being researched by doctors. And her response= that's not a real diagnosis, its not real. I wasn't happy with that, she should have listened to me more before she jumped down my throat. The only reason Im even going to therapy is because I need medication for mood swings and insomnia. But I have a question for you guys: whenever your daydreaming do you… Continue
